Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a horrible overall score, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home received just a D in that category. As it turns out, this proved to be its second best grade. Our short-term care grades are probably more critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 6.1 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
Does this page answer your questions about Brookview Healthcare Center?
Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. When computing our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth category, this facility really didn't perform well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 63.72549 percent of its residents. This is significantly below the national average. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
